Short chapter on Slay the Art Monster. Kleon suggests that some people who make art, while they might find what they need from making art, art is not about the artist. He begins the chapter with a quote from Andy Rooney’s quip remark about Kurt Corbain’s suicide, that “no one’s art was better than the person who created it.” Kleon reminds the reader there are creepy people who make art. There are worse people who make art. And art monsters live within all of us. He brings attention back to a focus on what great artists assist with the person who witness their art, in making people’s lives better.
I encourage you to buy a copy of Keep Going for a better understanding of your own creative process. Whether you're a master artist or beginning artist, this is an excellent book.
